Digital Schladming

 

CIT platform with hyperlocal information (Schladming)

The IN2 scenario is founded on Schladming Pinboard within the context of Digital Schladming. The ambition of the ski resort is to develop a CIT platform which will contain hyperlocal information. It is expected that the usage of the platform will satisfy the tourists needs and consequently his fidelity. The IN2 Experiments will help the local stakeholders but also the region to understand what are the challenges of the approach with the Future Internet capacity.

The experiment should help them to understand:

  • what investment in the infrastructure is necessary to support good Quality of Experience;
  • what are the expected information for guests with multimedia contents;
  • if hyperlocal information services will be taken up successfully;
  • what patterns of usage of hyperlocal services are most relevant to the guests of a touristic region and its local stakeholders;
  • which kind of information, what amount and in what way should the information be presented to the guests of a touristic region (in winter and in summer) infrastructure;
  • what needs to be monitored by the stakeholder and how to provide user friendly tools for monitoring the experiments.

Tourists will be asked to subscribe to an information service, DigitalSchladming where they can, from their tablet or mobile, look for points of interest and plan their day in the resort. The service can indicate them where to find shops, ski slopes, etc, but also the practical information such as which slope is open and let them share it with their community. This experience can continue after they stay in Schladming, as they will have the possibility to get new information about the station and possibly some opportunities and special offers.

The DigitalSchladming experiment will use the SCC and AVCC baseline components of the EXPERIMEDIA project. The experiment is centred on an information-rich, web-based media channel for the entire region, the Schladming PinBoard, and a personal hub for media contents of each end-user, MySchladming. The two systems are seamlessly interconnected, allowing the end-users of MySchladming to effortlessly publish the content they want to the Schladming PinBoard. Together the two systems are able to create a hyperlocal temporally bound community.
